    I think it's over hyped, it's just a reskin of iOS and doesn't really hold anything ground breaking. Beside the new look, it just has a few new note worthy features that Apple has played catch up on.

    Automatic updates
    Control centre
    More rooms In folders (because we were begging for that apparently)

    There's so much more they could of done :
    Default apps
    New keyboard (it's a reskin)
    Improved notification centre and the ability to swipe to close
    Plus other features that apple could of wowed us with that haven't already been done.

    I love iPhone and will stay with iPhone, however I'm sorry to say I can't love this update as much as some of you, I won't let the simple act of a reskin cloud my judgement and force me to think its the next big thing. I still hold out hope that one day, apple will amaze us, truly amaze us.

    A change is always hard for someone. But a change is necessary.

    I welcome this change!

    I don't want widgets. I really really don't want widgets. I have yet to use or see one that is worth it.

    You probably wouldn't be forced to install one if they did allow for them.

    We'll see if you say that when you actually have your hands on the final version of the software

    Don't forget about the cool new skinny font!

    It's all about the font, man.

    Maybe, but so far bright colours and clever - needless- animations aren't making me say that.

    I'll get back to you on that however :)

    If that's all you see iOS7 to be, you're missing the bigger point. Apple has always been about Apps. They want you to spend more time in the app because that's what iOS has been about. What iOS7 will do is open the door to developers to create a totally different app experience. That's what iOS7 is about.

    I thought the same about OS X 10.5. But after a while it grew on me. The new features and the new UI. So I say give it a little time, wait till it's released and use it a little then we all will be able to give a proper opinion on iOS7.

    They ruin the experience.

    Thats an opinion. I think the new design of iOS7 ruins my experience. But again, thats my opinion, and everyone is entitled to one.

    Even with just those bolded items above, the new iOS still represents quite a big improvement compared to changes between previous iOS versions.

    If you don't mind, can you elaborate on how the new design ruins your experience?

    You missed AirDrop, iCloud keychain, unified URL/search bar in Safari and probably a couple of other 100 things. ;) :)

    And to be honest, your other suggestions may be a welcome addition to some, but hardly "ground breaking" considering they already exists on other platforms.

    Your opinion is all kinds of subjective not to mention, just because you didn't want a feature doesn't mean no one did. Stop speaking for "we" and start speaking for you.

    I don't have iOS 7, but there are things I'm not super fond of. For a beta, it is not terribly broken.

    The average consumer could really give a crap about widgets. ;)

    Of course it's subjective. That's why I started the message with "I think.." : )

    I disagree about it being overhyped, in fact, I think it's gotten more criticism so far than it deserves, but you have some fair points that I will go over.

    There's WAY more features added than this. I'm not even going to bother to go over them.

    The quick menu is enough for me, however I wish you could add ANY button from any app to load onto it. So I could use something like WeMo, and have it there to turn a light on/off easily.

    I originally wanted this as a feature, but with the new features added to Safari, I have no default app I would even change. You want to send a photo to photoshop or a video to VLC instead? You can just open the app and do what you want, so this feature doesn't really do anything for me personally.

    This is one of my biggest complaints, I hate the new keyboard, but I think it will get updated as it's only beta 1.

    Swipe to delete or close like they did with Mail would be nice as the little X is hard to press for me. I wouldn't call that a "wow" feature, but it would be nice.

    I think the features you pointed out are very minor and with it being beta 1 and all... we don't know what else will get tweaked. I think you're missing a TON of new features though.

    +1 on this. Every other OS I've used Android and WP stock keyboards I've hated. And believe me I've given those bleeders a chance. I can't type anywhere as fast on those stock ones as I can on my iPhone.

    You're overhyped.

    I think we are getting widgets, just not in the obtrusive Android way. For example, Today in Notification Center is a much better implementation than just having widgets on the home screen, and Control Center takes care of most common things that widgets are used for.

    Also, if Apple adds an API for live icons, like the clock app is in iOS 7, then that is another step in the right direction.

    It doesn't hinder the performance of the os. Widgets, palm waves, and all the other stuff on android make it a laggy, choppy experience.
